    If the machine is strictly for adduction movements, it tones the inner thighs. If it's a combo adductor/abductor movements, then it includes the outer glutes.

    I never use the adductor, just the abductor which works your outside glutes. The adductor is more for inner upper thigh and once they are rubbing together, I don't see the need to make them bigger.. imo.

    You'll get better results doing walking lunges with weights.

    Yes, and most women use both the adductor and abductor machines incorrectly, pushing with their feet instead of their knees (not to mention mindlessly flinging while they yakking). I've found that the best way to use them properly is to lighten the weight and keep your feet an inch above the footrests.

    Women also suck at the other girly machine, the Buttblaster - almost every time they push with the balls of their feet instead of their heels and work the lower half of the range of motion instead of the upper third. They're not great at isolating their cheeks during the exercise either - must be a gay thing.

    why is everyone so stupid today...

    it works out your adductors, i.e., a muscle group in your inner thighs.

    Adductor machines are great for rehabilitative purposes. I have a few students who've hamstrings have torn because their adductors are too weak (not because they overstretched their hamstrings). Depending on the nature of the tear or strain in the attachment of the ischial tuberosity, an adductor machine is a miracle worker.

    And, even if one doesn't have hamstring or adductor issues, its always a good idea to balance the strength and tone of all four side of the legs. Imagine if you have a strong Abductors, Hamstrings, and Quads but weak inner thighs, its like having a pillar with one side completely deteriorated. You don't have men using these machines because adductors aren't "mirror" muscles (muscles you have to show off). So the people working these muscles aren't doing it for vanity but for creating a balanced muscular skeletal system.

    It's not bad, but there are better exercises to work the adductor group, i.e. wide stance squats/sumo squats. However, like the previous poster mentioned, it's good for rehabilitative purposes because of it's isolation of the adductor group for those who require adductor strengthening.

    But if you think about it, what functional activity do you do sitting down that requires adduction of your thighs? Unless you're a dancer who performs crazy movements or an MMA fighter who squeezes heads between their legs.

    Is there a difference between using the adductor machine and stepping side to side or jumping side to side or stretching by parting your legs wide and wider?

    Okay, the stretching is a stretch, but it seems Djokovic learned to split as wide as Kim Clijsters in tennis. So, holding your own body weight in that running split in tennis requires strength, not just stretch.

    So, if that is the case, is there a difference between seated and standing adductor exercising and stretching?

    women use them becouse they think [wrongly] it will tight their butts.
    people who need to use it are long distance runners and bicycle[ers?] and other kind of athletes who use their legs much like football[for you americans soccer] players.

    I use it at my gym, I even use it "maxed out" which is 200lbs. (inner thigh part). Does it work? My thighs are "toned" but not "rubbing" together.. LOL.

    Absolutely.

    It's imperative to maintain balance and work as much of your body as possible.

    You'll want to do adductors, as well.

    If you play hockey, working abductors can really improve your power skating.

    I tore my left hamstring (grade 2) a year and a half ago. I've mostly rehabbed it. It did it in the fourth set of standing leg curls, 9'th rep, 3/4 of the way into the eccentric motion. Ouch. (I've had legs as big as 28" at 5'5".)

    As it turns out, I needed to stretch my quads more because I was over extending my hamstrings.

    Post workout stretching needs to be integral to any fitness program.

    It's mostly fixed now, but, you can see where the tear was. My ortho said they never fix hamstring tears, even in pro athletes.

    Your advice, I think is sound.

    I recommend doing all the muscles...forearms...abductors...adductors, etc.

    Right. I've seen torn hamstrings from a number of different causes. I definitely know from working with hundreds of people per week that the adductors are greatly ignored by most people, and as evidenced by the comment in this thread, are muscles that are emasculated and ignored by men. I don't know much about bodybuilding or weightlifting but my guess is that although larger muscle groups are emphasized (for show) smaller ones MUST also be underscored as a way of supporting the structure as a whole.

    It is unfair for you to expect him to pick you up, If you can't grip your legs around him hard enough to at least support some of your weight.

    Meh.

    Having no need to tighten a vagoo since the Good Lord didn't see fit to give me one, I'll stick with squats, deadlifts, and lunges to keep my legs in shape.
